They may only be entering their junior year of high school, but many future top recruits in the class of 2013 have already made their mark on the football field and the recruiting world.
No player has made a bigger splash thus far than
Grayson (Loganville, Ga.)
defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Nkemdiche has the power and frame to play tackle but the athleticism and explosiveness to line up at defensive end or even outside linebacker.
As a first-year starter in 2010, Nkemdiche exploded onto the scene with 18 sacks, helping Grayson to 10-4 record. After the season, he received AAAAA all-state honors and was also named a U.S. Air Force Sophomore All-American
